    Private First Class, I, Anthony Baker, served over 120 days in 1983 at Camp Lejeune. At that time I was exposed to the said contamination. Although I have no signs or physical ailments I was still exposed to this very damaging toxic water. What do I need to do to find out what all I am entitled too for said exposure? I am very worried that this terrible incident has done unseen, unknown, or future damage to my physical being. I feel that there should be some kind of compensation awarded to all of the marines that were exposed. If there is compensation being awarded, how do I go about receiving it? Thank you for your time in this, Anthony Dale Baker

    You are probably not entitled to anything, unless you have one of the fifteen diseases. Then your entitled to health care and have to fight for compensation. If you have one of the eight presumed diseases then you should be able to get compensation.
